N bringing before the public a work pf this description I feel it 
necessary to say a few words by way of Preface. The n^me 
of " Rosicrucian " d!oes not appear to have been known 
until the commencement of the Seventeenth Century, when Europe 
was beginning to emergie from the depths of the intellectual dark- 
fiess of the middle ^ge^o The Reformers, notably^ C^vii) and Luther, 
had to a great exteijt ,brjpk^n up the ground preparatory, to a new 
■era. This welcopji^, change did not, however, prevec^t religious 
fanatics of m^ny^rts from trading on the credulity o( thp masses, 
as is- witnessed, by the number of quacks who extorted money 
under the pretence of being able to tell fortunes, and to perform 
transmutation, even by means of a compact with the evil one. It 
seemed as though a horde: of], sharpers was let loose, and they gulled 
people in a wholesale ijj^nner. Things were in tjii^ state when in 
the year 1614 two anonynaous pamphlets appeared,^ the one called 
The Universal and General Reformation of the whole wide Worlds 
a,nd the oiher The Fatna Fraterni talis ^ or Brotherhood of the Praise- 
worthy order of the Rosicrucians^ a message to the Governments^ 
Nobk^yflnd Scientists of Europe, These work? caused an immense 
excitement, and were translated into several languages ; a large 
number of pamphlets were circulated in reply, and the whole of 
Christendom was stirred to its utmost depths. This state of things 
,w.ent on for some considerable time, and finally seemed to exhaust 
itself ; but curiously enough fresh evidences of interest in Rosicrur 
<:ianism crop out at intervals. In the Encyclopedia Metropolitana it i$ 
stated definitely that in 1630 there was a London College of Rosi- 
<:rucians. Another remarkable instance occurs in the work No. 132^ 
by a Count Eckhoffen, who wrote under the Pseudonym^ of Fianco 


and Phcebron ; in this work a very important Folding Table appears ; 
this was translated into English and published by Kenneth Macken- 
zie in his now scarce work The Royal Masonic Cyclopedia (p. 617), 
it contains the full details of an order based upon Rosicrucian design. 
JTit Places of Assembly^ Consulates^ Countries^ Symbols , etc., are 
given, and the contents of the work reveal to my mind sufficient 
evidence that about 1750 sucK an Order undoubtedly existed, and 
was worked on Kabalistic lines. In further confirmation of this 
actual existence of the Order I must refer my readers to an 
article that appeared in a German publication called The Sphinx^ 
published at Brunswick, and a translation of which appeared in the 
TheosophiU^ for April, 1886 ; it is written by a certain Karf 
Kisewftter^ who states that be found amongst his great grandfather's 
papers documents shewing that he was the then Imperator of a 
Rosicrucian Lodge (1769) ; he goes on to say that in 1792 ft was 
derided to release the Brethren from their oath of secrecy, and to 
destroy the Library and the Archives, Whether this was done or 
not, there is no evidence forthcomfng, but he dwells at length on 
the ** innumerable secret arts with which the Rosicnicians were 
acquainted/' In the present day we have an organisation of 
Masonic Students, who are joined together under the title of 
^ySocietas Rosicruciana in Anglia** and whose ramifications extend 
to Germany, and abroad to India and the United States of 
America, and in whose service I have the honour to be Secretary to* 
the Supreme Council, and of wWdi my worthy colleague, Dr. W. 
Wynn Westcott, is M.W. Supreme MagUs. We have a number of 
earnest and thoughtful students and Literati in our ranks. 
Considering alt of the collected evidence it is certainly a fact that 
the Rosicrucians did exist. They did work Lodges, and were in 
possession of knowledge that was not accessible to the man in the 
street; neither did they adopt the modern scientific method of 
making every discovery public property, the propriety of which 
many even now question. They evidently adopted high ideals, as- 
they worked unselfishly for the good of the world and accepted 
no remuneration for so doing; they made no display from 
motives of vanity,, and worked unknown and unostentatiously^ 
leading quiet and secluded lives, secure in their own knowledge 
which was not to be obtained by any but woithy people. This- 


knowledge wjs also not to be purchased for mohey^ but descended 
ffom lovers of the Hermetic art to others who tl%d in the same foot- 
steps. " We wrap ourselves in mystery," says one, "in order to avoid 
the censure and violent importunity of those who r^ard us as no 
philosofi^ers but wanting in common prudence, except we employ 
oar knowledge to some worthy use and profit." Whether as some 
writers suggest, this knowledge has descended from the Ancient 
Philosophers of Egypt, the Chaldseans, the Persian Magi, or the 
GymnQsipphists^ofiliittia, it hardly, falls <-wuhin my province to dis- 
cuss, but I may mention en passant that the Rose and Cross are 
Symbols of Great Antiquity — the former was dedicated to Vcpus as 
the Symbol of Secrecy and Immortality and is sacred both in Life 
and Religion ; the latter according to the Christians is well known 
to typify Salvation ; but it is of much greater antiquity than 
Christianity, and amongst the ancient Egyptians it symbolised 
^* Life." According to Masonic Tradition it was foreshadowed in 
King Solomon's Temple ; again the Rose and Cross combined 
were the badge of a Knight Templar. Robert Fludd or his friends 
who wrote the *' Summum Bonum "state its meaning to be ^ the 
Cross sprinkled by the rosy blood of The Christ,** which is a purely 
religious illustration. Again there is the Rose of Sharon, and 
amongst the Indians, the Mystical Rose is continually met with in 
legends ; so that we may have to look to the East for its origin. 
Lord Beaconsfield declared that the Secret Societies and the Papacy 
were the only two Institutions endowed with permanency ; and this 
is possibly the reason why the latter has always been so persistent 
in its intense hatred of the former. In fact any Order that is 
possessed of real Occult knowledge is hated by the Church of Rome, 
which brooks no rivals ; its history is one of unrelentless cruelty and 
spiritual despotism ; its pathway is strewn with the human wrecks 
whom it has used as its tools in the service of its restless ambition ; 
power was its one goal, and achievement was desired irrespective 
of cost; the end alone justifying the means. 

As in the present day I have no desire to perpetuate the 
follies of the middle ages, nor to suggest to anyone the necessity of 
yielding up his freedom of thought and will to any Imperator, 
Magister, or to the Chief of any secret society, however high sound- 
ing and high falutinga title may be assumed, rightly or wrongly ;so 


I think it advisable at thip !poij!ft.-to caution any would-be; aspirant

have always taught *'\That JDivine wisdom is. .not to be ti^^ht^ 
nor sold fir private gain'^ l>y^\i\\ regard the*' compilation of 
this catalogue, I may say that I have been collecting books on 
Rosicrucianism and other, :niysticalriiubjects for upwards of twenty 
iive years, and , consequently possess a library of some magnitude*- 
The volumes here* catalogued Uiat I do not possess, and which 
I was. unable to obtain at the British Museum, I have chiefly 
taken '/from that excellent though now exceedingly scarce work 
by J^^. George Kloss^ " Bibliographie der Freimaurerei^^ published 
at Frankfurt am Maine, A.D. 1844 ; it is indeed a store-house of 
Masonic literature and it also contains a great number of Rosi- 
<:rucian works. Owing to the rarity of the Kloss Catalogue, 
coupled with the fact that there were a large number of other 
Rosicrucian works scattered in various places, I thought it would 
be useful, and in fact a necessity for our descendants to be able 
to' refer to a work such as this of mine, in which I have 
endeavoured to collect in one volume the titles of all the literature, 
of this subject. I do not pretend to say that it is complete* 
and I shall be very grateful to any of my literary coadjutors for. 
any hints and corrections they may think fit to make, for use in 
any future editions ; but as hitherto no such work as this has beclq, 
available, I thought I could not do better than set to work and 
present this Catalogue .in its present fornu 

I should like to say a word as regards its arrangement I have 


endeavoured to adopt the method employed by our National Library, 
and have arranged the books under authors' names, but where 
only initials have been used I have taken these in full and placed 
them under the first initial ; where any book fails to fall under either 
of these categories I have taken the first word of the actual title, 
discarding all small articles ; again where there have been a number 
of works written by some authors such as '* Robert Fludd," 
" Michael Maier," " Thomas Vaughan," &c., I have arranged 
their particular works according to chronological order, because of 
the special interest attached to any particular controversy which these 
writers may have had with any opponent, such as was frequently the 
case. Kloss has adopted this latter plan entirely in his work ; but 
this renders reference to any particular author exceedingly difficult ; 
whereas by following my method you can turn up any author or 
work at once without trouble. 

In conclusion I trust to merit the grateful memory of book 
lovers in the future, for having collected in a permanent form the 
hitherto scattered fragments of a literature that embodies the beliefs 
and ideals of the older Rosicrucians which are cherished by a small 
but select group of thinkers on this most interesting subject in the 
present day.

npHE history of the Rosicrucian Fraternityt the date and manner 
of its origin, and the peculiar doctrines and pursuits of its 
members have always been subjects of the greatest interest to siich 
literary men as find a charm in tracing the developments of genius 
along what are now considered somewhat erratic lines. 

The proceedings of those societies which are credited with the 
pursuit of a knowledge of the Occult world, of magic and of alchemy, 
in secret assemblies and with solemn ceremonials, have always 
attracted certain students who fiiil to find full satisfaction in the pur- 
suits of common life, and the subjects of general literature. 

The Rosicrucian Fraternity was brought to public notice in 
Germany by means of two tractates, the " Fama Fratemitatis," and 
the ^* Confessio Fraternitatis,'' which were printed at Cassel in 1614 
and 161 5. 

The former work, the '^ Fama," narrates the history (or as some 
critics say — ^the myth) of the fouhding of the Fraternity by one 
Christian Rosenkreuz, who appears to have been born circa 1378, 
and who was educated in a monastery^ He is said to have started 
upon a tour in the Holy Land as companion to a learned monk, his 
master and teacher. This brother died in Cyprus, but Christian 
Rosenkreuz continued his travels, visiting many countries, of which 
the Holy Land and Damascus, Egypt and Fez are mentioned, and 
sought out in every place " such as were learned." In this manner 
he gained great wisdom, and studied the ancient Chaldean religion, 
tne theology and ms[gic of Egypt, the philosophies of Alexandria, and 
the Kabalah of the Hebrew rabbis. 

From Africa he returned by way of Spain to his native land — 
Germany, and there settled down to form a society of learned men, to 


which he might impart the resuhs of his long and laborious researches 
in foreign lands. The narrative goes on to say that he first chose 
three fratres, in the year 1408, and with their aid a dwelling and 
temple for the home of the new Society was erected and named 
•* Domus Sancti Spiritus." ' I TV 

These fratres, under the tuition of C. R., wrote a Dictionary of his 
occult lore, and composed a ritual of instruction called the Book M. 

In 1410 tour more fratres were admitted to the private studies and 
practical researches of the Society. Peace and prosperity appear to- 
have blessed the new venture, and after a time of probation some 
fratres went away on travels of benevolence, using healing arts and - 
comforting the afflicted. . u;;'. . 

In view of his approaching death^^ahd wheh of great age, C. R.. 
designed a Vault for the reception of his remains. He collected 
in it all manner of symbols representing the hidden truths of 
nature, and the occult relations of the planets and stars to man ;. 
and many marvellous devices. Above all, it is noted that " into 
this Vault the sun shineth not, yet was it illuminated by another 
light placed in the flat heptagorial ceiling." 

In the year 1459 was written ^byC. R. the extraordinary volume, 
entitled the Chymische" Hochzeit, or "The Hermetic Romance of 
the Chymical Wedding." 

In 1484, the Founder, Christian Rosenkreuz died, fulL of years and 
honour, and was buried by the survivors of the early adepts in a 
private manner in the Vault so long prep^lred for his body. C. R. 
appears to have wished that this Vault • s{i6uld remain closed 
for one hundred and twenty years, after the expiry of which time, if 
the Society survived; the Vault was to be opened, the existence of 
the Society declared? arid a fuller admission of students to member- 
ship should be invited. 

This long period passed away; the. Universality of Catholicism 
had been wrecked, and the Reformed religion had become notable \. 
the Vault Was opened, and the embalmed body with its curious sur-^ 
roundings Svas displayed to view. 

The survivors, or their nominee, who is now generally thought to 
be Valentine Andrea, a German theologian and mystic, published the 
** F^ma " to the worid ; and next year republished the ** Fama " with 
the " Confessio." This latter tract explains the aims of the Society^ 


mi?ny ofits doetrifife' and 'its attitude to the outside tsrorld, and gives 
the prifti^y Allies. ' ^*^ i> ;.: . 

TWe^^Fama" Viiews Cfcrtstianity as contrasted with Paganism' and 
Mohammedanism, while the " Confessio " adopts the views (3rf the 
Reformed Lutheran religion. 

The publication qf these fwo works caused a- storm among the 
learned ; intense interest was excited, and the land was* flooded with 
pamphlets, /some written against the possibility of the existence of 
the Fraternity and others loudly welcoming the foundation of such a 
home of learning and benevolence. 

Do these works refer to a myth, or do they narrate a history > 
Each alternative has been supported by men of great eminence, but 
no final decision has been arrived at ; no Domus Sancti Spiritus has- 
even been seen by the uninitiated ; that much is certain ; but how 
many persons were received into the Society no one can say. AU< 
that can be stated is that from 1616 onward there have been always- 
some persons who claimed to be Adepts of the Rosicrucian Fraternity. 
Some few of them have issued printed works relating to Rosicrucian 
subjects ; others have signed themselves with the official motto, 
R. C, and others appear to have written in defence of the Society 
anonymously, or under the guise of a Latin Motto. 

The Soc. Ros., in Anglia is composed of Freemasons alone, 
and derives its title from some descendants of the older Rosicrucian s- 
of Germany ; it does not profess Magic, nor claim the possession of 
the Philosopher's Stone ; but ** The aim of the Society is to afford 
mutual aid and encouragement in working out the great problems of 
Life, and in searching out the Secrets of Nature ; to facilitate the 
study of the system of Philosophy founded upon the Kabalah and the 
doctrines of Hermes Trismegistus, which was inculcated by the 
original Fratres Rosae Crucis, of Germany, a.d. 1450 ; and to inves- 
tigate the meaning and symbolism of all that now remains of the 
wisdom, art and literature of the ancient world.'* 

It numbers about five hundred members, who carry out, so far as. 
may be, the objects of the Society. On their behalf primarily, and 
for the assistance of literary men in general, my Frater Gardner has 
taken very great pains to make this Catalogue of Rosicrucian books, 
a most arduous task, but one after his own heart. 

The Catalogue will be of the greatest use, not only to those^ 


interested in the recondite studies of the Roticrucians^ but also to the 
student of Freemasonry, for it is to the tenets and dicta of the Roci^ 
cnicianf, that many Masonic authorities look for the source of much 
of Masonic ritual and symboliBm.

At the end of the 3 preceding works and also the one entitled " Epidmia

together with those of ** Schweighardt " " Agnostus (1.) " ** Valentia " and 
**Alberti" are those used indiscriminately by Andreas (J. V.) nnd his 
friends ; it is certainly a curious fact that two of these pseudo authors 
should issue works bearing both of their signatures whereas no one else 
appears to have done so.

This was the first work put forward by Andreas, and which caused all the 
stir and excitement as witnessed by the number of pamphlets, etc., which 
deluged Europe in general and Germany in particular for a considerable 
time afterwards. According to Herder this must have circulated in MSS. 
sometime previously because Hasselmeier in the Tyrol had seen and read 
it in 1610 and replied to it in 1612. 

The ** Universal Reformation" is a literal translation of a work by an Italian 
"Boccalini" (vide Article) ** De Ragguagli di Parnasso," 1612, this had 
no connection with the R.c. order, but was merely bound up with the 
Fama ; as regards the Confessio this was not issued until A.D. 16 15 (vide 
next two items). The above works were the two first printed editions, 
their titles vary slightly but the contents are similar.

Collation iii pp. 

In these two works we now have the addition of the Confessio which in the 
words of my worthy coUaborateur Dr. Westcott contains " Lutheran views 
as contrasted with those of Roman Catholicism whereas the Fama treats 
of the form of Christianity as contrasted with Pagan Worship, there being 
no reference to the Reformed Church whatever." This is very significant 
and is a point that has hitherto been overlooked by all the Critics. 

Another edition appeared in A.D. 1616, Frankfurt, on the title page of which 
one finds "first printed at Cassel in the year 1616" which we know to 
be wrong. The excitement was so great that the work now ran through 
several editions, some omitting the Reformation and inserting fresh matter 
of their own until the old editions having become scarce during the last 
century Frederic Nicolai of Berlin undertook the reprinting of it in 1 78 1, 
inserting however the date 1681 instead, and to complicate matters still 
further, omitted Berlin and inserted Regensburg (vide Article No. 49, 
" Authentische Geschichte, etc.") where a number of similar books 
had been printed. Another edition of the Fama was issued in 1827, 
with the Confessio at Frankfurt on the Maine. Collation (xii) 95 pp.

I have placed this work under Andreas as the generally accepted Author, or 
at all events the person responsible for its publication ; to some it is a 
fable and a school boy's romance, to others it contains sublime Hermetic 
Truths of a very high order. I wonder how many of its readers are able 
to decipher the i^nigma contained therein,

We see here in this and the preceding work, the attitude of Andreas's mind

he states that it is purely imaginary.

This work was published by our same author. He signs the preface 
with his initials and dedicates the book to D. Heinricus Heinius of 
Rostock, he states that the whole history was nonsense and says that he 
himself was responsible for starting the movement ; of course he refers to 
the " Fama and Confessio " the immense amount of attention and the 
number of replies it called forth ; but it appears to me that the hubbubs 
that was caused by the issuing of the Fama^ etc., exceeded his expectations 
and he endeavoured to allay it by publishing this work, as he says in it 
" Listen ye mortals. In vain do you wait for the coming of the Brotherhood, 
the Comedy is at an end, etc.," but this did not have the effect he desired 
as many were dissastified with this explanation, ai^d the excitement con- 
tinued for long after, judging from the literature that followed.

A reprint of some of the choicest works including the Reformation, Fama, 

" In the posthumous writings of M. C. Hirschen, pastor at Eissleben, it has 
been found that John Arnd informed him in confidence as a near friend 
and former colleague how he had been told by John Valentine Andrea — 
also subrosa — that he namely Andrea, with thirty others in Wurtemberg 
had first sent forth the Fama FraternitatiSy that under this screen they 
might learn the judgment of Europe therein, as also what lovers of true 
wisdom lay concealed here and there, and would then come forward"

In the fourth part page 899, Arnold adduces some conclusive evidence as to 
Andrea being the person responsible for the sending forth of the * * Fama 
Fraternitatis." He also adopts the view that the order .existed before

Halkett and Laing {Anon Dicy.) state that their copy (Bodleian Library) has

as evidently the first edition contained tnis misprint. The Arcanum has a 
separate title page, and the whole of this is a translation of Jean 
D'Espagnet's Hermetic Arcanum (vide Art) although Ashmole fails to 
acknowledge it. This was his first work on Hermeticism and probably 
was inspired by Wm, IMly^ the Mystic, whose acquaintance he first made 
in November, 1646, and whom he refers to in eulogistic terms of praise.

A most important collection of Alchemical tracts, including Thos. Norton's 
Ordinall of Alchemy, G. Ripley's Compound of Alchemie, Dr. John Dee's 
Testament, etc., etc., it is embellished with several very finely engraved 
plates and cuts of a mystical character, engraved by Vaughan, also a 
table at page 118 which is frequently missing, it states that this figure 
conteynes all the secrets of the treatise both great and small. In the 
preface he complains of the scant honour the Fraires of the R.C. receive at 
the hands of their countrymen, instancing the cures done to the Earl of 
Norfolk of leprosie, and Queen Elizabeth twice of the small pox by two of 
the Fratres. He then goes on to compare the warm reception they receive 
at the hands of Foreigners, instancing Maierus, Combachius, Faber, etc. 
This is one of the most important works we possess in the English language 
on this subject. Ashmole obtained his Hermetic knowledge of the 
Philosopher's Stone from Mr. William Backhouse of Swallowfield, Berks., 
as in his diary he says : May 13th, 1653 : " My father Backhouse being 
ill unto death told me in syllables the true matter of the Philosopher's 
Stone which he bequeathed to me as a legacy."

It is true that this author has assiduously collected the bare titles of about 
4000 books, but by far the greater number want the sizes and dates and 
places of publication, and what is of much greater importance we find on 
analyzing the list that a number of works are inserted which have no right 
to be included in an Hermetic Catalogue, such as Books on Medicine pure 
and simple, also some authors are inserted who beyond perhaps making a 
single philosophical utterance can absolutely lay no claim whatever to be 
Hermetists. After all said and done there are about 900 bona fide authors

Catchword at the end of The " Pulsus " work, viz. " Medi," refers to Part 
V. of the same series, consisting of a large Table measuring 39 by 17 inches ; 
in the British Museum Copy this has been cut up into three pieces, so that 
it is not a blank sheet as this author suggests, although curiously enough he 
mentions it in the reprint issued at Moguntia, 1682

Another Edition was published at Amsterdam (?) 1782, 223 pp. Both of

there is a curious misprint, the last page being numbered 232, it should be 
223 : the second edition has this imstake corrected, the text being exactly 
similar. (See also in connection with this Author article "Theoretischen

This is a very important work inasmuch as at page 84 we find a large folding 
table in German of the order " Fratrum Rosa et Aurea Cruets" This was 
reproduced in Kenneth R. H. Mackenzie's **^^j/a/ Masonic Cyclopadia" 
without any acknowledgment of its true source, which it has been left to 
me to di-cover. I am informed* by my worthy colleague Dr. Wynn West- 
cott who was personally acquainted with Frater Mackenzie, that he would 
never divulge the source from whence he obtained this information, which 
I am bound to assume was taken from this Book, inasmuch as it tallies 
almost word for word with the later work, it contains the "Degree Mem- 
bership, Number, Sign, Colour, Symbol, Name of the Brotherhood.Places 
of Centre, Places of Assembly," etc., and as far as I am able to judge this 
must have been written by a renegade Frater, as the rest of the work is too 
consistent to be a total fabrication.

The authorship of this work has been denied by Fludd, but it is very evident 
that he was largely responsible for its production and certainly approved of 
it. It is written in defence of the Rosicrucian Fraternity's claims, and con- 
tains therein the views of Fludd and those of his friends. It has recently 
become exceedingly scarce.

Rosicrucians, as he knew he was unable to meet it.

more popular than his others. The English translation which he himself 
accomplished was not published until a.d. 1659.

This is the best biblic^aphical work on Hermetic books up to the present 
that we have ever seen. It must have taken the author an immense 
amount of time and trouble to compile, and his notes evince an amount of 
knowledge that is most admirable. He mentions the F.R.C. as fanatics, but 
I am afraid that most people are dubbed thus who run counter to the 
orthodox public opinion. Look back in history at the Inquisition, Tycho 
Brahe, Mesmer and Mesmerism. What is called fanaticism in one age 
becomes the creed of the next. ViTho could have foretold in Mesmer's 
time, and even later with Dr. Elliotson, here in England, that the much- 
ridiculed Mesmerism would be the adopted pet of the medical faculty, who 
in a former age could use no epithet hard enough to abuse it ? Autr&

This was really done to relieve the bnrden on Mersenne's shoulders, who 
was getting the worst of his conflict with Fludd. So Gassendus came to 
the rescue, although he did not entitely exonerate his friend from blame, as 
his language was not very choice in his description of his opponent. Fludd 
replied to all this in his work, " Clavis Philosophise," Frankfurt, 1633, in- 
cluding Mersenne in his diatribe. A good deal of this controversy is to be 
found in the " Foster " work by Fludd, vide Nos. 184, 186.

there are a couple of tracts. One is called, "Aureum Sa^ulum Redi-

Collation (vi) 62 pp. 
In this early work the author states in his preface that he is not a Rosie 
Cfucian, but throughout the work appears to have hitched himself on to 
the title of R.C. without appreciating the true signification thereof. He 
' is very verbose, and loses himself in pages of windy eloquence, for the book 
is little better than a lot of scribbling without much point. He evidently 
obtained further and deeper knowledge later on, as his later works evince ; 
but this early one makes one think of the first plunge in a new bath. He 
refers, however, on page 41, to Sir Christopher Heyd«>n as the "Seraphi- 
cally Illuminated Rosie Lrucian and learned Astrologer," so it is just 
possible that this was the source where he derived his R.c. teachings from, 
and which blossomed out to greater advantage in his later writings.

Collation (xlii) 126 pp. 
The author again states in the preface to this work that heisnoRosicrucia,n,but 
he first mentions that there are a Society of men known as Rosicrucians. 
He then goes on delibrately to copy out of the Fama and Confessio pretty 
well the whole history of C.R., his life and travels, without acknowledging 
what I presume he must have been aware of— thfeir having already appeared 
45 years previously in German. He further refers to the Book M, and 
states that he himself as having '' put it into English wearing the title of 
The Wise Man's Crown,'' and then describes a vault where the sun never 
shone ; nevertheless, it was enlightened with another sun and an altar in 
the centre covered over with a plate of brass, &c. \ and further goes on to 
say (p. xviii) that " there is another vault or habitation of the Brethren in 
•the West of England," and winds up by saying that, "Thus much at this 
time and no more am I allowed by my Mistress Euterpe to publish." I 
notice that one of the laudatory epistles is signed by Fredk. Talbot, a 
gentleman who wrote the author's life in the work, *' The Rosie Crucian 
Crown." The book as a whole contains some real knowledge and is one 
of the most valuable he has written. The bulk of it deals with the subject 
of numbers and shows indubitably that he passed through the lower grades 
of the Society.

This work is very ably written and is entirely devoted to Geomancy, with 
Astrology and the Angels, corresponding to the Geomantic figures, their 
Sigils and influences for good and evil. Most of the modem Geomantic- 
works are taken from this and earlier books. Altogether, our author pre- 
sents the subject in a very exhaustive and lucid manner, and judging by 
the number of works he quotes, it must have taken him a considerable 
time to compile. A proof of this is the various dates to the parts, one 
being published each year.

This work contains some very choice alchemical mystical plates, and shews 
to my mind that he evidently got hold of valuable knowledge, which he 
gives out in a covert manner. A Mr. Fredk. Talbot also gives an account 
■ of John Heydon's life, mentioning that he was related to Sir Christopher 
Heydon, whom I strongly suspect was the cliannel through whom he ob> 
tained his R.c. knowledge, as he speaks so eulogistically of him in another 
of his books, although it is very possible be jmy have picked it up in his 
travels, as Talbot states that he went to Spain, Italy, Arabia, Egypt and 
Persia. He was descended - from Julius Heydon, the King of Hungary and- 
Westphalia, and CsQsar Heydon in Rome, and was articled to a Mr. Mic 
Petley, an attorney of Clifford's Inne, afterwards fighting for the king ; and,, 
after travelling, wrbte most of his books', — recounting a list of the 
wonderful predictions he made concerning his Majesty, etc He also appears, 
to have had a good deal of influence at Court, as when he got into trouble 
on one occasion we find that the Duke of Buckingham espoused his cause 
with great success. He was also not* without vulgar copyists, and others, 
who emulated his success. He appears to have been consulted by many 
high ladies about various divinations, but he di4 not marry, although of a 
handsome appeifrance. On the whole, from the intenfal e^dence of his 
writings, he appears to have goiie through the lower grade of the R.c. Order 
and to have given out much of this to the world. Whether he was chosen 
as a fitting instrument to do this at that time I am unable to say, but judg- 
ing that it came so shortly after the publication of the important Fama^ 
etc., in Germitny, I should not consider it unlikely that those who ruled 
such matters should deem it advisable to start a movement in England and.

We have here a work of a most discursive character. It contains a mass of 
ill-digested information upon Rosicrucians, Antiquities, Legends, etc. His 
remarks hardly crystallize ; they are more suggestive than positive, and deal 
too much with the physical aspect of our subject. In the second and third 
editions he has deliberately cribbed the occult plates from Welling' s Opus^ 
published at Franckfurt, 1760, without any acknowledgment whatever. The 
same remark applies to the Gnostic gems in the 3rd edition, which are taken 
from an old work issued by the famous Plantin Press at Antwerp, 1657, It 
was written by J, Macarus^ viz., *' Abraxas seu Apistopistus . . . de Gem-

Ancient and Mediaeval. 2nd edition, royal 8vo. London, 

The 1st edition appeared in 1864, but this one has been considerably enlarged. 
The author devotes a number of pages to our subject, and has raised a storm 
of abuse from the Masonic Fraternity by venturing to assert that that Order 
had its rise from the R.C., who, after the fuss in Germany in the 17th cen- 
tury, came to England and started Freemasonry, Phcenix-like, out of its 

2y$ [King (Dr. W.)] The Dreamer, dealing with the 
Rosicrucians, or Knights of the Rosy Cross, Temple of 
Hercules, &c. 8vo. London, 1754 

Pages 64 to 72 are devoted to a reference to the Rosicrucian Order, which is 
valuable evidence of tlie continuity of its existence at that time. Although 
some of the a lusions to its members are not of a very complimentary 
character, yet it undoubtedly constitutes a link in the chain of evidence of 
its existence in that day. *

Rosicrucians, which I should have been obliged to omit otherwise. It is a 
marvellous compilation, and of late years has become quite unobtainable, as

Our author in this work has evidently been placed in possession of further in- 
formation since his former ones, as he shifts his ground entirely. He now 
admits that the Order does exist, and points out the advantages to be gained 
by joining it, as there is much wisdom and learning to be obtained by so 
doing ; and this is all done under the cloak of a csitic — rather different to 
that of the position of Doubting Didymus taken up in his earlier works.

Nand6 in this work upbraids his countrymen for their readiness to take up 
with new and ridiculous ideas, and the whole of it is written disparaging 
the idea of any such Brotherhood ; but then one must remember that he • 
was Librarian to Cardinal Mazarin, and the teachings of the Romish 
Church have always sternly repressed any rivals or freedom of thought, and 
Nand^ had his reputation to sustain and his living to earn, and who could

This Author's opinion is to the effect that, after having made a study of the 
greater part of Andreas*s works and others that have written on the subject, 
he is of opinion that Andreas, being only 28 years old, when the Famd first 
appeared, and a young man full of ardour and enthusiasm, hoped to spread, 
by means of poetical fiction^ his moral and political vtews (page 176 et seq.) 
and also purge the defects which existed in Theology, Science, etc., of his 
day ; but finding that his fiction was taken literally by the majority of 
people, and also the persecutions he suffered at their hands besides to his 
disgust, the misrepresentations and abuses his teachings received at their 
hands, induced him to abandon and relinquish his wriyect ; and to suggest 
that the Order was non-existent and only imaginary. Vide Andress's Articles

these, however, have been numerous References, Articles, and Papers, on

Vol. VIII., page 214, contains an account of " The Laws of the Brotherhood

consideration. There is also some other Rosicrucian matter scattered 
through the volume, but of not so much importance.

This, the First Series of this publication, is much better than the later ones.

by Karl Kisewetter, on " The Rosicrucians." He contributes some impor-

to him his R.c. Papers. 

Vols VIII and IX contain a series of articles on " Rosicrucian Letters," 
purporting to be translated from the German and signed F. H(artmann). 
If this is the Author of the ** Secret Symbols of the R.C." one must be 
guarded in accepting evidence of this description. 

Vol XV contains a long article by Dr. Westcott taken from " Theosophical 
Siftings," called " Christian Rosenkreuz and the Rosicrucians."

a ycry passable collection of Alchemical Works, although Du Fresnoy says 
that this translation of Geber is very bad, as he failed to choose the best 
edition of this author for his work, which is that of Danzic, 1682.

(Second Edition, with plates, 2 vols, 1849). 

In Vol II., p. 35, a chapter is devoted to Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry 
and the positions very fully reviewed, the author coming to the conclusion, 
however, that the " Fama " was not intended to describe a Society really 
existing, although he adduces some excellent evidence to shew that 
it was put forward by Andreas, there being nothing to show on the face of 
it by whom it was written. This author has got the date of the 1st 
Edition of the " Universal Reformatiion " correct as being A.D. 1 6 14, but he 
is hopelessly out in his subsequent dates : he evidently had a meagre library 
at his disposal.

This work contains a translation of the " Universal Reformation'^ ; also the 
" Ckymical Wedding" and a general survey of the whole movement. I 
cannot, however, do better than quote an extract concerning it from the 
privately printed Transactions of the Metropolitan College of Soc, Ros. in 
Anglia for 1891-92, page 10, viz. : — " He compiled this work and wrote 
his comments on Kosicrucianism when entirely an outsider to the Hermetic 

78 Bibliotheca Rosicruciana. 

Orders, but since that date he hns made the amende honorable to this Society 
and has entered into the studies by a recognised portal, and hns expressed 
himself well fatisfied to have done so." 

I will now further quote, in Mr. A. K. Waite's own words, from a magazine 
he edited, ** The Unknown World," Vol. I, No. T, 1894, page 29, viz. : — 
" Much has come to light in these matters since the year 1887, and the 
work as it stands is in need of a thorough revision." 

It would be superfluous for me to add anything further.

This is an excellent English Translation of this old Rosicrucian work by 
Jean d Espagnet^ wha also wrote the " Enchiridion Physicse." The notes 
are by ** Sapere Ande " and the work is edited by w.w.w. This is Vol. i

579 Chaldsean Oracles of Zoroaster. Edited and 
revised by Sapere Ande, with an Introduction by

** It has been believed by many, and not without good reason, that these terse 
and enigmatic utterances enshrine a profound sys!em of mystical philosophy, 
but that this system demands for its full discernment a refinement of faculty, 
involving as it does a discrete perception of immaterial essences" (Introduc- 
tion by L.O.). 

This is a charming work. The notes are by an advanced student and exhibit 
a rare view of spiritually refined ideas. Would that we had a few more 
such to leaven our present materiality. 

580 Egyptian Magic, by S.S.D.D. Edited by w.w.w. 
8vo. London, 1896 

This work is one of the ColU Hermet. Series, edited by w.w.w., and could 
have been better dispensed with It consists of little more than selections 
from the Sixty-fourth chapter of the Book of the Dead, the Han is Magical 
Papyrus, Petrie's Egyptian Tales, and the Gnostic Bruce Papyrus. Accord- 
in-j to G, Ji, S, Mead*s able review of this work in Lucifer, Jan., 1897, 
**The faulty transcript of Woide has been followed, instead of the critical 

text of Schmidt y in Amelinean's text of the Bruce Papyrus " ; and a doubt 
is cast as to the originals being in Greek, which point g.r.s.m. says has 
been definitely settled ; also that there is an absence of Notes or Explana- 
tions in the book, which is of a suggestive rather than critical nature.

The Ancient Mysteries have ever rivetted the attention of the woild's most 
earnest thinkers, and this Book is a valuable contribution along that line of 
thought. As the author justly points out, " The Hermetic Doctrine 
explains the identification of the Spiritual and Immortal Being with tlie

with Bacon's life and death ; that John Heydon identifies Bacon's ** New 
Atalantis " with the land of the Rosicrucians, and many other details of a 
similar character, some of which are unworthy of attention.

However, in 1878, the Editor plucked up heart enough to issue it at 
one-fourth the price of the larger work, and I believe the result has 
justified his enterprise.
